My recent artwork sales have me thinking about the process of buying and selling art. Funny how when you start thinking about something you stumble across related information and resources suddenly!
So here (at right) is an article I came across and thought had some good reasons for buying original art instead of reproductions (which they refer to as prints; it is important though to distinguish between original prints and reproductions more explicitly).
Obviously some original art is expensive but there is plenty out there that is not – for a one-of-a-kind, handmade work requiring specialized skills! An iPad is obsolete after only a few years whereas even artworks that cost less will last you a lifetime.
If you have any thoughts on this topic, or the article link (above right), please share them in the comments below!

As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
